Agree. Actually, Itís not in Web Crypto neither (see todayís minutes and Giriís comment in the spreadsheet)

Re-reading the requirement [1], it looks to me like something which can go very deep and spawn to various WG. So as a second thought,  Iím not sure a simple refinement of the requirement would really help. 
It also relates to Local Network Service Protection [2] .

May be a specific discussion should be triggered on this topic? A wider discussion which could encompass that one is about protection on tv as a general topic: device authentication, app authentication, content access (remote and local).

Agreed. A CG spawn on this specific subject is under discussion :)
